How to prepare cake with kefir

Mix the eggs with a mixer and slowly add butter and sugar combined with vanilla and kefir. Mix well and slowly with a table spoon add flour that you previously mixed with baking powder. At the end slowly mix in the hazelnuts.

Prepare the mould for the cake. We used the one int the shape of a lamb. Coat it with butter and sprinkle with flour over it. Pour in the dough and bake on 200 °C for 45 minutes. When baked cool it off. Cut the cake in half and spread the marmalade in between. Attach the halves back together and cover it with marmalade on top too. Sprinkle with roasted hazelnuts over the marmalade. You can leave it for a day or two or serve immediately.
